and infrastructure. This includes change standards and procedures, impact assessment, prioritization and authorization, emergency changes,

Management practices

BAI06.01 Evaluate, prioritize and authorize change requests.

Evaluate all requests for change to determine the impact on business processes and I&T services, and to assess whether change will adversely affect the operational environment and introduce unacceptable risk.

Ensure that changes are logged, prioritized, categorized, assessed, authorized, planned and scheduled.

BAI06.02 Manage emergency changes.

Carefully manage emergency changes to minimize further incidents. Ensure the emergency change is controlled and takes place securely. Verify that emergency changes are appropriately assessed and authorized after the change.

BAI06.03 Track and report change status.

Maintain a tracking and reporting system to document rejected changes and communicate the status of approved, in-process and complete changes. Make certain that approved changes are implemented as planned.

BAI06.04 Close and document the changes.

Whenever changes are implemented, update the solution, user documentation and procedures affected by the change.
